The OMEGA™ OS-MINI-Series is packed with a wide variety of infrared sensors designed to work for many applications and provide fast non-contact temperature readings. The miniature sensing head is ideal for space limiting areas, is manufactured using 316 stainless steel and has an IP65 rating. This robust, easy to use sensor is used in many industries including pharmaceutical, food, automation, manufacturing, plastics, paper, and much more!
The electronics module is available with several different options: The backlit touch screen interface provides a large, bright display of the measured temperature in digital format and a graph view that shows the history of the measured temperature. It also enables full configuration of the sensor including temperature range setting between -20 to 1000°C (-4 to 1832°F), adjustable filtering, peak or valley hold processing, emissivity setting and reflected energy compensation. In alarm conditions, the whole display changes color to provide an immediate and obvious alarm indication.
Alarm modes and levels can be configured via the touch screen. When fitted with a MicroSD card, the Omega MINI and MINI22 models also function as a data logger, providing a useful means of recording process temperatures for quality assurance and traceability. The user can select the sample rate and the number of samples to be taken and schedule the data logging to start at a certain time. With a 2 GB card, the user can store 28.4 million time and date stamped readings, which provides almost 1 years’ worth of data at the fastest possible sample rate of 1 per second. Output options include 4 to 20 mA, RS485 Modbus and alarm relays, which are rated 24 Vdc so there is no need for a separate trip amplifier. Optional accessories include mounting brackets, an air purge collar, protective lens cover and laser sighting tool.
The OS-MINIUSB is a simple easy way to measure non-metallic surfaces between -20 and 1000°C (-4 and 1832°F), with a response time of just 125 ms. Some specific applications of the OS-MINIUSB include but not limited to:
With the precision and robustness of our industrial pyrometers, and the plug-and-play convenience of USB, the OS-MINIUSB is the ideal fixed mount IR temperature sensor for testing and experimentation.
The OS-MINIUSB is ideal for teaching science concepts such as emissivity, reflectivity, thermal conductivity, energy transfer, insulation and internal energy.
